Over the past few years, Alexander Street, a ProQuest company, has led a project to build a community website—Open Music Library—combining subscription and open materials in a free index of digital resources supporting the study of music. On May 26, , we are concluding the Open Music Library project. ProQuest is continuing to develop other open initiatives to serve the community and engage users across many disciplines. This is an ongoing focus area and we will communicate key aspects of this work on a regular basis. The Open Music Library openmusiclibrary.

Exceedingly rare.

In he began to study guitar with P. Agafoshin and conducting with Prof.

Add Review snilsen13 February 24, Report. This is a really interesting recording. I've got a fair classical guitar collection, but I had never seen or heard of this artist.
Added on the back cover are notes on Mr. Ivanov-Kramskoy, which are accurately reproduced above, and descriptions of the songs by Joseph Greenspan. His own prelude in D minor is based on folk themes, Russian of course, and makes a welcome addition to a the catalog. I'm not familiar with any other Russian guitarist, but the fifth piece recorded here is by Russian guitar master Mikhail Visotsky This is pretty a piece and not so challenging that it shouldn't be more common, it utilizes many techniques as it "wheels" through variations on a Russian melody.
The notes remark that the piece was developed for his students and that he was otherwise poorly known. Reply Notify me Helpful. Have: 29 Want: 10 Avg Rating: 5. Add to List. A In The Garden.
